For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer, with about 41,760 U.S. women expected to die in 2019 from breast cancer. For men, about 2,670 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in 2019. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 883, according to BreastCancer.org.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, the waste and recycling industry has been active in supporting efforts that raise awareness and money to fund research for breast cancer treatment and to find a cure.

In this gallery, Waste360 describes efforts related to the waste and recycling industry that support breast cancer awareness.
